This hotel is in a great location right in the centre of union square. (Designer shops galour) if you like that sort of thing. Your within a short taxi ride or bus or cable car journey of most major attractions. It's pretty basic but more than does the job.

We had high hopes for this hotel as it was the last on our honeymoon, driving from Seattle to SF. We had already been given a complimentary upgrade which was nice. Staff & concierge were very helpful (John I believe) The room - we had an historic king. It had no view apart from a wall or the premier rooms... More

It was just fantastic, but like posts i had read before we got the rooms near the street. It was noisy but noticed the ear plugs and my husband was right. Food was excellent Would stay there next time . I loved SF. Lyn

we have just spent 4 nights at this hotel, we stayed in the historic section and was offered a quiet room with no view or one at the front but would be noisier. We chose the one at the front, it was a little noisy but nothing that disturbed us. The hotel was both clean and tidy and all the... More

Was needing a hotel for the weekend after doing Amtrak from Chicago. Wanted to be near Union Square, not too far out of the hustle and bustle, but also wanted a good deal. Did not find anything via major chains, but did find this gem via another web search and it did not disappoint! Stayed in the older part and... More

Stayed for four nights at the very start of our US tour. Enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are simple albeit a little dated but the location on Union Square is very handy for basing your San Fran adventure.

San Francisco was absolutely amazing and we loved it, but this hotel was a real eye opener from the lobby it looks like a really nice clean and well presented hotel. But when we got to our room we couldn't of been... More

Just back from a 3 day stay at this hotel. It could have been so different if we had stayed in the newer building and higher up. Our room was in the old section on the third floor. Our view was of the wall to the next door building and their ducting. The single glazed windows poorly fitted hence the... More
